Meanwhile, there are some things that I am reading about in the neighbouring country that make me sad.
"Despite increasing concerns of violence in Zimbabwe, South African officials have said they can do nothing to prevent a Chinese shipment of arms from being delivered to the land-locked country."
Oh ya, and here is a photo of the highway through the copperbelt, its a proper highway with 2 lanes going each way. With the price of copper so high right now, it is a high priority to have these roads in good shape.Highway in the Copperbelt region of Zambia
